|Head Coach Bernie Bickerstaff|
(On the Difference in This Game)
"I thought our defense, we had like a 10 point lead in the first half and we got into an admiration thing with the officials and basically lost focus. The one thing about Phoenix, they never capitulate and they were right back into the game. I thought the second half our defense, down the stretch in the fourth quarter was really, really good."
(On the Lakers' Offense)
"We saw attempts at trying to do the things that have been implemented, so we did see that. I thought the spacing was pretty good. I thought it served (Jodie) Meeks well, on some of the sets that we were running."
